Adobe Acquires Ideacodes
Adobe’s design firm acquisition spree has claimed another company. Adobe on Tuesday purchased San Francisco-based design consultancy Ideacodes for an undisclosed sum. The company, a boutique user-experience design outfit, and its co-founders, Emily Chang and Max Kiesler, will be rolled into Adobe’s Creative Cloud team. Ideacodes is Adobe’s third design-related acquisition in the past six months, following the purchase of Thumb Labs and Behance. It comes as the company is refocusing its business around subscription-only cloud services.
